This year we have looked at the USA in our Road Trip USA unit. We made persuasive travel brochures based on our favourite states. We linked this to our art work where we created amazing totem poles out of cardboard. In science, we have looked at electricity and living things and their habitats. We experimented with how long it would take for bread to become mouldy!
In Spring term, we will be looking at World War Two. We have an exciting trip planned to the Time and Tide Museum where the children become evacuees for the day. In science we are learning about the human body: particularly the heart and lungs. In art, we are drawing still life and in DT we are making our own waistcoats.
After the SATS, we begin High School transition. This includes transition weeks in the local high schools and transition units in English and Maths. We also have some exciting trips to celebrate their achievements. These include our residential to London and our fun day out at Pleasurewood Hills. At the end of the year we celebrate by having a leaver’s assembly, a leaver’s festival and a water fight. We try to make the last year at junior school special so the children leave with lasting memories.
